Which would you recommend; Coolsculpting or Smart Lipo for my body type?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A Q. Which would you recommend; Coolsculpting or Smart Lipo for my body type? I have already had them priced out by my Plastic Surgeon. He said it is up to me which one I want, but he seemed to lean towards Smart Lipo. I would be doing upper and lower abdomen, inner and outer thigh (with CoolSculpting I can’t get outer thigh done), and flanks. Do you find that they have similar results? Does Smart Lipo have better results for someone like me with higher concentrated areas of fat? Thank you so much for any help! A. Smart Lipo is a limited technique which uses a laser at the end of a 1 mm fiber optic cable to heat and destroy fat cells. In most cases, a liposuction cannula will be required to further remove the fat cells in a “spot” or contoured technique. The procedure is invasive and very physician dependent on his or her skills and talents. Currently, there is little if any commercial marketing on this device or technique. ​ ​CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, but also limited technique. It is “tried and true” and can work very well when properly performed. Used serially, you can achieve a “Treatment to Transformation” liposuction-like result. ​ It is a bit unfair to compare a surgical and non-surgical technique; particularly when it is dependent on a proper exam and recommendations. ​ ​​Thanks for sharing your photos. Based on the very limited information provided, your best investment maybe traditional liposuction. ​ Please consult with a well experienced, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to offer what is best for YOU! ​ ​All the best!
